Fun, but no Honda
By Hector Rivera on


2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


A very fun car with great power when the new software doesn't make the turbos lag. Not as much low end torque as the first 135i I test drove in March 08. Now needing a fuel pump makes me wish I bought an Acura or Infiniti. Lots of fun when it's not in the shop. Run flat tires ride like bricks. The suspension is a little soft. I wish the cruise control was on the steering wheel. Getting into 2nd gear is slow and temperamental. Can't read the radio with sunglasses on. Headlights look like a crazy cat. Overall it's a blast to drive, but the magazines must have tested one without the new 29.2 software that causes turbo lag. Would I buy it again? Not sure???

Best Features

Sport seats, Coral leather, wheels, steering wheel.

Worst Features

Fix the 29.2 turbo lag. Fix the fuel pump problems. This car is not that reliable.
